21st Brazilian Poultry Congress a “milestone for poultry industry”
The Brazilian Poultry Association (UBA), the Brazilian Chicken Producers and Exporters Association (ABEF), the APINCO Foundation for Poultry Science & Technology (FACTA) and the Federation of Industries for the State of Rio Grande do Sul (FIERGS) will join forces towards the common goal of Brazilian poultry farming excellence.
The 21st Brazilian Poultry Congress will take place from 26-28 May, 2009, at the FIERGS Exhibition and Convention Centre in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Dissemination of knowledge, new developments in production and worldwide trends in the consumption and sales of chicken meat and its products will be discussed. The Congress will bring together the entire Brazilian Poultry Industry at a single trade fair with both business and technical-scientific related events. This will be an historic event, celebrating the first gathering of all the most important organizations of the Brazilian poultry industry.
ABEF president Francisco Turra: â€œThis is a truly historic event for the industry, which will serve to unite the entire chain, from production to exportation. It will draw together the country’s most representative poultry farming organizations. Of course, this is all in keeping with Brazil’s rank as the world’s third largest poultry producer – and closing in fast on the second position – and as the main exporter worldwide,â€ stated Turra.
Market and knowledge
For the first time, the FACTA Conference, a well-established Brazilian technical-scientific event, will be held together with the Brazilian Poultry Congress. In keeping with the tradition, the oral presentations of papers competing for the Lamas Award will hold an important place on the calendar, with an entire day reserved for the presentation of research. On the schedule, these speeches will take place only in the morning, with the afternoon left open to visit the trade fair and do business.
The organizers are expecting to welcome national and international exhibitors from all areas of the poultry industry – nutrition, sanitation, genetics, equipment, laboratories – as well as visitors connected to the industry, such as business owners, producers, veterinarians, technicians, researchers, leaders of organizations and trade associations and people from all professions related to poultry farming.
